Computer not booting in any mode; Blue screen of death

My computer had that nasty redirecting virus, so we ran Combofix and it has been working fine until this evening.

The computer is not booting in any mode. When I try to boot normally, it goes to the loading screen, then the blue screen of death pops up for about a second and then the computer restarts. This happens in almost every mode except Safe Mode, where it loads all the drivers and then restarts.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thank you so much! One more question, how would I go about replacing the deleted file if I can't get past the loading screen?

Dumb question, I know, but I do appreciate the help. :D

Is there another method I can use or a clearer guide to help me get through the recovery console? It is clearly not for beginners, which is what I am.

Thank you!

Yup! Recovery console is working fine. I'm just a little confused on how to use it.

Try typing this command:

Copy C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\pciide.sys C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers

Then type exit.

No, it says 'The system cannot find the file or directory specified.'

So the whole thing looks like this:

C:\>cd windows
The system cannot find the file or directory specified.

Type this and let it run through the check, it can take along time:

chkdsk /r

Note the space before the "/"
